The use of AYY’s guesthouses for accommodation purposes to end

The use of guesthouses at Otakaari 20 for accommodation purposes will end on 30 Apr 2020.
Otakaari 20

AYY is conducting condition surveys of properties and has also reviewed the use of all student union facilities. According to the survey, it is necessary to make some changes in the use of certain facilities.

The facilities used as guesthouses at Otakaari 20 are not originally intended for accommodation purposes. The facilities do not comply with safety and other regulations, which we wish to follow more carefully in the future. This is why AYY Board decided at its meeting on 28 Apr 2020 that the use of guesthouses at Otakaari 20 for accommodation purposes will end on 30 Apr 2020. The guesthouses will no longer be rented for accommodation purposes from 1 May 2020 onwards.

We are well aware that affordable accommodation is an important additional service for many events and therefore this policy may complicate the overall organisation of events. However, we want to act responsibly and specify the use of our facilities only for the purpose for which they are intended. In the future, our aim is to openly consider different options to meet the accommodation needs. We also welcome any ideas you may have. The guesthouses have also been used for emergency accommodation at the beginning of the academic year. We will explore new types of operating models for emergency accommodation and the related guidance during the spring and the summer.

Government cuts put a stop to the construction of student housing

We are shocked by the recent cuts of the Finnish Government which put student housing and its construction at stake. In its session on spending limits, the Government made significant cuts to the special group investment grants for student housing construction, which makes the commencement of already planned housing projects in the capital region uncertain and complicates the housing situation for students as well as the housing activities of the Aalto University Student Union (AYY).
